My parents only paying 60 euros a month for a full coverage for 2 cars and I am paying $190 CAD per month of minimum coveragefor only one car. My parents think i am paying way too much. They said it be better if i could have my insurance from France instead in Canada.

Living in Ontario, Hamilton/Toronto makes no difference. You are in Canada, not France. Do you think a bank in France would give you a LOAN considering you are living in another country (Canada). NO WAY. Why would another country even consider covering your Insurance needs? NO LOGIC. Canada is your home base, face up to it. Stefhen

I was thinking the same thing. I don't see how a French insurance company would even consider insuring a vehicle that in not primarily driven in France.

France is more socially conscious than Canada. An insurance company may insure the vehicle. You know, they do have schools outside their own country, in North America in fact.... Lycée

Most insurance policies have specific territories. In Canada, you are only covered in Canada and the continental US.....suspect most countries would be the same. Altho expensive, you must think about the absolute nightmare of dealing with a claim in Canada with a European insurer. Also, not sure about the insurance act in the province you will be visiting but most acts stipulate that vehicles be insured by an insurer licensed to operate in that province.

What exactly are you basing this statement on?

Automobile insurance standards and systems differ from province to province, therefore, if you're serious about pursuing this angle, contact the DMV of the province where you plan to register your vehicle.
